Small-Flowered Sand-Verbena Recovery Plan engagement

Albertans shared feedback on an updated draft recovery plan for this threatened plant species.


We gathered feedback on an updated draft recovery plan for the threatened small-flowered sand-verbena plant.

The updated draft plan incorporates new concepts in recovery planning and summarizes most recent species data, while keeping conservation actions similar to the original 2012 recovery plan.

Your feedback on the threats, goals and strategies designed to conserve the small-flowered sand-verbena will support the efforts of government and other organizations to ensure it remains in Alberta.

Small-flowered sand-verbena is considered threatened in Alberta based on its small area of occupancy and the small and possibly declining population of the plant species.
